Special Clause Offers

Special Clause Offer - what does that mean?

A "Special Claus Offer, also referred to as a purchase contract with a "Sale of Buyers Home Condition", is used when a buyer of real estate has not yet sold their previous home, and either needs or wants to sell that home before committing to buying the next home.

Why is a Sale of Buyers Home Condition required?

In some cases a home owner may wish to move, and ends up finding the home that they would like to purchase, BEFORE they have successfully sold their current home. If the buyer of the new home is not able to qualify for financing to keep both homes, or if they decide that they absolutely do not want to have the chance of ending up owning two properties, they may decide to use a Sale of Buyers Home Condition in their offer to purchase the next home. This means that their offer on the new home is subject to the sale of their current home. If their current home does not sell, they are under no obligation to move forward with the a ...

The Truth About Open Houses

Let's go see some open houses...

Many sellers think that open houses are what is going to sell their home. Open houses have been an integral part of real estate sales for as long as the real estate sales have been occurring. Open houses would have at one point, been an important part of your home marketing strategy.

Condominium Ownership

My friend told me that a condominium is the same thing as an apartment...
We hear it all too often - "I want to buy a condo!". When I ask what property type they want: apartment, town home, detached home....? They reply "I want a condo!"
So heres the low-down on condo properties. A "condominium" refers to a style of ownership, NOT a style of construction. Condominium is a Latin word formed by two parts: "Con" meaning "together", and "dominium" meaning "domain, property, or ownership". Simply put, it translates to owning property together with others. A condominium is a property that is made up of separately owned "parts" or "units", and also has common property which is jointly owned and maintained. 
Condominiums will have a Board of Directors which controls the day to day activities of the condominium corporation, and is usually made up of unit owners within the condominium.  The Board of Directors will also be responsible for enforcing the condominium bylaws.

Real Property Reports

Sellers often ask what an RPR is, and why it is necessary when selling a home. This should help you understand RPR's better. This blog provides information regarding RPR's, but is not legal advice, and does not replace the need for proper consultation with a real estate lawyer or REALTOR®, regarding your specific circumstances. 

What is an RPR?

A Real Property Report (RPR) is a survey of your property, showing the dimensions and placement of any improvements(the home, sheds, decks, etc) in relation to property lines. The purpose of the RPR is to make sure you are able to hold up your end of the deal, once a purchase contract is signed for your property. When selling your home, you are making certain "warranties and representations" to the buyer. You as the seller are representing to any buyer that all structures and improvements made on your property were completed with any required permits, that all is done in compliance with municipal or other bylaws or regulations, an; ...
